For Jossie Krenzler winning the Rimbey chamber of commerce customer service person award is an honour and a surprise, but it was also cause for a “bit of anxiety. “I had to stand up and get my picture taken with all the other winners,” she said. “It did cause me to be quite anxious.”

Krenzler, a community services receptionist for the Town of Rimbey said she very much enjoys her job.

“I do a little bit of everything,” she said. “A little bit of programming, fitness, and I liaise with community groups.”

The soft-spoken receptionist began working for the town a few years ago as a receptionist at the aquatic centre. She had recently graduated from Red Deer College with a diploma in social work.

She enjoyed working at the aquatic centre for the summer and was pleased to be asked to stay on with the town in a different capacity.

Working at the community centre and helping individuals and community groups connect is very enjoyable, she said.

“I also enjoy working on the computer and being creative. I make all our posters.”

Krenzler said Rimbey is a great small town.

“It’s crazy. Everyone knows everyone and everyone is connected, somehow. Working for the town is an awesome job,” she added.

Krenzler, who is married to Mike and lives at Crestomere, volunteers for a church youth group in Ponoka.

“It’s really a lot of fun,” she said. “We have a lot of kids (in the group).”

Being selected for the customer service award sponsored by Rimbey Co-op is an honour, but Krenzler noted that the others who were nominated were also very deserving.

“The people who were nominated are amazing,” she said.

Other nominees included Jared Ferwick and Riley Calder from The Empress Theatre Emporium, Cassidy Thebeau, Jemco Feeds, Laverne Oberhammer, Oberhammer Funeral Chapels Ltd. and Linda Todd and Carol Ziegler from Rimbey Pharmasave.

Also nominated were Louise Regnier and Brian Godlonton from Rimbey Co-op, Ann Hansen and Jackie Stratton from Scratchin the Surface, Kim Blondin and Linda Champigney from Sidestreet Liquor Store.

Patrick Rurka from Rimbey Value Drug Mart and Mary Jo McPherson from Rimbey Dental Care were also on the list of nominees.

The public nominated deserving individuals for the customer service person award and the winner was selected by a secrete nomination committee.
